1) Install real anti-virus software i.e. avira.com anti-virus

2) Try "Hit Man Pro" Anti-Virus/Trojan software

3) Try "SuperAntiSpyware"

4) Try "MalwareBytes" Anti-Spyware

Use TDSSKiller and (ComboFix if the problem persists) and show us the logs.

Download TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.

Extract the file and run it.
Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
Reboot your machine and see if the infection is gone
